How do you know if you have a heavy or light flow?

This is totally off topic to this community but I get the idea that everybody here must've 'mastered' this kinda thing (or not). Well, how do you actually know? My doctor asked whether I have a heavy or light flow but I have no idea at all. I mean how should I know how people with light flow bleed like and how people with heavy flow bleed like? Its not like I'd go and paparazzi on them! They're not even celebrities!
Anyway, I started my period a year and a half ago. It took me about 8 or more hours to fill up an overnight pad on my second day of period (usually the second day is my heaviest day). What flow do you think I am? Average? Light? Heavy?
