EXCEPTION Conditional with Modal Verbs
There are some special conditional forms for modal verbs in English:
would + can = could
would + shall = should
would + may = might
The words “can,” “shall” and “may” cannot be used with “would.” Instead, they must be used in these special forms.

If she had time, she might go to the party.
The words “could,” should,” “might” and “ought to” include conditional, so you cannot combine them with “would.”
If I had more time, I could exercise after work.
If he invited you, you really should go.
