When to test for HCG after miscarriage?

I miscarried 14 days ago. I'm still spotting/lightly bleeding. My midwife suggested I try a home pregnancy test 1-2 weeks after I stop bleeding but I'm anxious to know whether I miscarried completely or not. Do I wait to count the 1-2 weeks until I completely stop or should I start counting from the day that the flow really slowed?

Thanks!

So sorry for your loss. My midwife tested me at 3 weeks. (no D&C) I hope that helps.

Thank you, @Nazsmum ! I am at 2 1/2 weeks, so I will probably test soon.

Mama to my little busy bee.
