Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love them! Most women don't remember the day they first bleed, but I do. It was Christmas Eve, 1997 at my uncles Christmas Eve party. I was 12. My older sister had already had hers so I knew what it was, but I didn't know what to do. My mother hands me this MASSIVE pad and shows me to how to use it. As she leaves I can hear her in the distance telling everyone in the living room how her 'little girl was a woman now!' The heat in the house, the MASSIVE pad, and the heat of my embarrassment had me feeling swampy all night. I have been using tampons since. Some are too long; others are too big; all of them expand wrong. Except o.b., o.b. fits; and I love how little waste there is in packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Absorbancy! In my teens, my Gran gave me a box of lady-items she no longer needed. This was my first introduction to ob. At first I looked at the design and asked "I insert this how?". But after a few times, I didn't miss the cardboard or plastic. It is perfect for my light flow, which makes it a much safer product (to avoid TSS) it is comfortable and I don't have any lady accidents. :) I know others may have a different use for the jeans 5th pocket, but this little gem is totally concealable...no need to dig through your bag in a public restroom or riffle through your purse when at your friends house. I have been a fan for over 20 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ob works fantastically! This brand works like no other! Not only are they totally comfortable, they also provide maximum protection. I'm a swimmer, so I need to have total confidence in the knowledge that there won't be any leaks. I was super frustrated with other brands and pads, because neither were comfortable. With ob I can go through my day with absolute confidence and no worries about leaks. The price is worth it. Also they are super discreet! I can put one in my pocket and it doesn't show at all. I love the no applicator, and that they are designed by a woman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No More Trash! To begin, I live in a house with mostly men, so imagine being a guy seeing a bunch of colorful tampon wrappers in the trash can. Uh oh. Someone's on her period. My boyfriend's sister (the only other woman there) does this, so EVERYONE knows when she's in a bad mood. Anyway, With no applicator, no one ever truly knows when I'm menstruating, because I leave NOTHING in the trash. I flush the small plastic wrapper it comes in, and so far, it's been ok. I know my periods, so the regular absorbency is perfect for me. I've tried super and it would always come out too dry, except maybe on day one. I make sure to change my tampon about every 4 hours on the first two days to make sure I don't overflow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changing I to, as many others was very skeptical of using a non applicator tampon but then I received a free sample and since I can not deny anything free I had to try. I was pleasantly surprised! They are so discreet and convenient. They also are so much more comfortable then any applicator tampon I have used. My experience with applicator tampons are that they tend to be big/thick and in turn uncomfortable or they are smaller but do not provide enough protection from leaks. OB is the best of both worlds and then some! They are super small which makes them way more comfortable yet they provide excellent protection. NO leaks:-) Thank you OB!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tampon! I have never had much luck with tampons; I can never get them to insert properly, but this one is easy to use and comfortable. I don't think I'll use another tampon again. I love that it is more environmentally friendly but I do wish that you would offer a light flow tampon! My only concern is regarding the bleaching process, I know FDA says it doesn't produce levels of dioxin that are detectable, but that doesn't mean that accumulation over time won't result in detectable levels. I wish you'd consider switching to a completely natural process!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OB is perfect for those with shallow canals! I have always had a problem with any sort of regular tampon, and even the more absorbant OBs as well, but the regulars are perfect! I can't and wouldn't use anything else!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE IT! I absolutely LOVE O.B! I was hooked after the first time I used O.B. Love how I can put 2 or 3 in my pocket and I'm always ready. Compared to others, I love that O.B opens all the way around and not just 2 sides like others (yes I tested O.B and another brand by putting them both in water to see how they work) now I see how O.B really protects and doesn't leak. Very comfortable too. I have other tampons as "back ups" but try not to use them because O.B is my first choice and I do not like using anything different with less coverage. This product ROCKS!!!!! Thank you for an amazing product that really works.

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.
