Yes: 'infertility' is defined as unprotected intercourse without conception for one year. This is based on studies demonstrating 85-90% of normal couples conceive in that time. This definition does not depend at all on 'actively trying.' It's therefore 85% chance you and/or your husband have a fertility problem, you'd need a doctor's evaluation to say 'what' the problem is.
