Pregnancy test: Typically, a 32 day cycle is considered the longest time span a cycle can be considered fertile, i.e, with ovulation happening that can lead to pregnancy. That does not mean if cycles are longer there is no ovulation. If a woman feels it is taking extraordinarily long for her to come on her period, a pregnancy test should be done.
