alternative menstrual products

I just ordered a Keeper this afternoon from a local natural foods market. It should be here in a while. I'm really excited about it, especially since it can be worn in anticipation of a period and with no strings hanging out.

Just one question, though: can I use it if i'm spotting? i just switched birth control pills from Yasmin to Seasonale, and I anticipate quite a bit of spottage come week 7 or so, as happened the one time I skipped a period on Yasmin. It was pretty heavy spotting, almost like a light period, but I felt uncomfortable using tampons on such "unofficial" menstruation.
