In brief: You ARE "infertile"

However, "subfertile" would be a better term probably.
And yes, there are a number of tests that should be done to evaluate your fertility, but you must also have your physician ask you questions and examine you to help determine the cause for not becoming pregnant.

In brief: First thing...

The first recommended approach is to test your partner (sperm test)since it takes more tests to find the problem in the female.
Problems with your thyroid, prolactin, endometriosis, ovarian or ovarian tube scars or structural problems, progesterone imbalances,for example need to be checked for. Miscarriages do not cause infertility but what is not allowing you to conceive might be causing them.
