In brief: Depends
Infertility is defined by a couple with unprotected sexual intercourse for more than one year without pregnancy.
Or six months for women over 35. For someone like you with irregular period, or amenorrhea, it depends on the cause of amenorrhea. I suggest to see a fertility doctor and do some tests.
