Hi. It can take upto an year for healthy couples to conceive. But since you have irregular periods, I'd suggest you to get evaluated. Since I don't know your weight and if you have other complaints, it's difficult to tell cause of irregular menses.
Next Steps
TSH prolactin, ultrasound pelvis, husband's semen analysis. revert with reports

Hello....first thing you should know is- infertility means unable to concieve even after one year of unprotected regular Sex. If that's the case it may be due to numerous causes, in womens- it might be due to uterine abnormality,hormonal imbalance, fibroid in uterus,sometimes infection like T.B would have scarred fallopian tube which might be a cause,certain medications, obesity etc. In men- decreased sperm count, chronic alcoholism,smoking,obesity,premature ejaculation,medications, testicular infection or trauma etc....so get this things checked. You should know that there are 20 to 25% cases where the cause is unknown for infertility....As I already mentioned if you are not concieving for more than one year, you can try invitro fertilisation(IVF) technique which has a good sucess rate....kindly consult a obstetrician regarding this they will guide you further.
