"Could not live without these tampons!!" Every month I have 24 hours of an extremely heavy flow. I am a nurse and I would have to call in sick on this day if I did not have this product. Right now it is very hard to find this product, almost every store I shop has stopped stocking it. Please make them more available!!

"OB Ultra's are NEEDED not just wanted." As other ladies have voiced, OB Ultra is really the only tampon that helps with the heaviest flow days. I have been scrambling the past couple of months to find them and they've disappeared from the shelves. Again. Please find a way to ramp up production and help us ladies maintain a life outside the bathroom during our cycles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only Tampon I’ll Ever Use - Over 25 Yrs!! I have a very heavy flow. So I was ecstatic when OB came out with the purple OB Ultra. Then they were gone, then back again! Let’s hope they are here to stay again! There is no other tampon I’ll ever use or switch to. So my only suggestions are that they increase the amount of stores or quantity that they send the Ultra too! I live in Anchorage, Alaska and they are pretty much all sold out wherever I go. I can only pick them up if I go to the stock clerks and ask when they are going to be getting more in and showing up on that day. And only a couple stores carry that size here in Alaska. Makes it difficult. But I’m glad there back on sale. Thanks for that! My only other suggestion comes from a community of people that I am a part of; I’m disabled and have two very severe chronic pain disorders that cover my entire body from head to toe! Basically my entire body is on fire all the time. Most of our community use OB tampons for health reasons and many other personal reasons, but many of us will only use the pro glide tampons because of the ease of use, on a body already racked full of pain. No need to make it worse without that ease, otherwise it would be very painful. The rest of us have found ways to make the larger versions less painful. But we would prefer that we could just by them that way, and don’t understand why you don’t make the larger sizes with the Pro Glide? But anyways, you still have the best and safest products on the market. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product ever. ALMOST I love the Ultra. It has literally I love the Ultra. It has literally given me back my life. I experience very heavy flow at least 1 day each cycle. And before I found these tampons I needed to change my tampon every 1.5 hrs. I was constantly worried that I'd leak, I had to have towels everywhere I sat. It was awful. But now with OB Ultra I can actually leave my house on those days. I can go 3 hours! It is actually life changing. The almost is that I hate not having an applicator. I am a BBW and I have short arms too. This makes it VERY difficult to get the tampon inserted high enough. I'd love the brand to bring out a reusable applicator. I'm tired of "improvising" a method. But it's still worth the hassle, and I will continue to be a loyal OB ultra user

Step

Step 1

Since your hands will be your primary tools here, definitely wash them!

Then take a look at your o.b.® tampon. Is it totally sealed? Good. (If not, don’t use it. Get another one.) Now find the colored tear strip and pull. Once you’ve done that, removing both ends of the wrapper is a breeze.

Next you’re going to find the string on one end of the tampon. Grab the string and pull it tight from left to right and top to bottom. This widens the base of the tampon, creating a nice and protected pocket for your finger. Which is great because your finger plays a starring role in our next step: Inserting the tampon.
