I've been looking this up online today and there are several forums where women with very heavy periods say that they use them, particularly overnight where with any other product they would be up to change several times in the night or staining the sheets.

Poise, maker of products similar to Depends, says that their product is 3x more absorbent than menstrual pads, so would be a great choice to use for periods.
