Mensagem:  Yes, you can. It is very commonly used in spoken English, but isn't considered correct for written English. Just bear in mind that "had" is also very often contracted to "'d", so in some contexts it can be confusing. "He'd always wanted to go" (he had) "He'd have wanted to go" (he would)
