thanks for the query.

if women more than 35 years not able to conceive after 6 months of unprotected intercourse it can be taken as infertility,
in your case it will be secondary infertility.

to treat infertility both partners to be get investigated.

for you: as you are telling that you are able to track the fertile days it is indicating that you are ovulating.
then the possible causes for your inability conceive are,

-as there is history of two previous abortions, at that time if history of D&Cs are there, then the possibility of pelvic inflammatory disease is there, which can present with uterine adhesions, blockade of fallopian tube etc which can lead to inability of sperm to reach the ovum or the zygote can't get implanted.

-endometriosis is one more possibility with D&C, which can also lead to infertility by causing scaring on reproductive organs etc.

-in case of regular periods the ovulation can occur between 12 to 16 days, as the life of ovum is around 24 hours, you have to plan intercourse in these days at least on alternative days.

to rule out above possibilities you once consult gynecologist, get examined and take one ultrasound.

for your husband: semen analysis to be done,
though previously it was normal, with time the parameters can change because of many factors.

after this basic workup possibly you can find out the solution.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
take care.
