I use a Diva Cup now, but before that I used pads. I'm one of those women who almost never needed more than just a pantyliner so for me it's just a matter of knowing what looks "heavy" like one of my periods and what looks much lighter.
I always went by brown= spotting, red=AF, because sometimes my brown spotting would be enough to fill up a pad in a day but it wasn't really flow. When my period starts, there's no mistaking it, it always starts heavy red.
Thanks for the replies. Yesterday and today both I've had hardly even spotting during the day, but then need a pad in the late afternoon/early evening, and it's gone again by bedtime. I'm not sure which to call that, and not sure if it even matters.
