"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.

Reviews for o.b.® Original Ultra



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.
