Rated 5 out of 5 by from No need to fear the flood! Where has this Ultra size been when I needed them for the last 5 years? My sister told me about them after they brought them back after her consistent write in campaign to do so. I finally don't have to run in the middle of the night to the bathroom in fear of a floor overtaking my bed. Or be afraid of what the back of me looks like when I stand up after a long meeting. These are the best tampons for my heavy flow days. But why aren't they more available and why doesn't the company advertise these at all so more women like me can find out about them and stop the fear? Get the word out OB!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from can't live without these puppies I love the Ultras. When they stopped making these I tried other brands Ultras, and they did not compare AT ALL. Those guys leaked all the time... ALL! and I could only use them for about half the length of time as I can with these guys (which on my heaviest days is about 3 hours, tops- so the other brand was only 1.5 hrs) I got so frustrated that I went with the OB super Plus's and those were still way better than the other brands leaky ultra! I also really like how they expand in width rather than length, which for me is uncomfortable. these are small and discreet, and fit in my pocket with no questions raised- I bet someone might think I have a chapstick in my pocket. Love these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra Special This is the only feminine product that respects and acknowledges women who are of a larger build and a heavier flow. When Ultra disappeared from the shelves I was distraught. What would I buy now? I sent friends to all boroughs to purchase the last boxes they could find so that I could ration them ( think Elaine, from Seinfeld, with the sponges) for as long as possible. Eventually, I changed brands. Knowing that Ultra is back is comforting, but I have yet to come back to the brand. I still respect the ability of Ultra and what it has done for me, but I feel like it may disappear again so I don't want to get my hopes up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra is amazing When Ultra were introduced, I was overjoyed. There is no other tampon that is as convenient, as clean, as reliable, and as absorbent as o.b. Ultra. Ultra allows me to use a single product without worrying about leaks -- as opposed to using a Super Plus in addition to a maxipad. So, I'm more comfortable, more confident, and I'm saving money with Ultra. I love all my o.b. products! The only thing that would make Ultra better is to include them in a multipack to cover my entire cycle but, even if that never happens, I'll stick with my Ultras!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right choice with ultra!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Bringing back ultra was the right choice. I was one of your customers that wrote and begged for you to bring this product back. I couldn't understand why it was stopped when I would go to make a purchase at the store and the slots were always empty where the ultra should have been (sold out). How could you take a popular item away. So glad it is back!! I feel like the rest of the reviewers that I feel secure again on those heavy days. Again, thank you many times over!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love OB Products! I recently switched to OB tampons from the brands with applicators. I can definitely say that I am very happy with the switch. OB tampons work as well or better than other brands, but without all of the waste from a useless plastic applicator. If you are looking for a hygiene product that is less wasteful, but you aren't quite ready for a menstrual cup (or if you've tried the cup and it's not for you), I would definitely recommend OB. (Side note: it used to be nearly impossible to find the ultra absorbency, but I've been seeing them more often. Glad OB is making this more available) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3rd world period problems in the 1st world. For years I have read of young girls in developing countries dropping out of school because feminine hygiene products are not available to them. Little did I ever think that i would be in a similar position where my quality of my life would hinge on the availability of ULTRA tampons. I had a copper IUD inserted a few months ago and ever since my periods have been super heavy. Using the ultra allows me to go an hour between changes or 2 if I double up. I was out so today I had to wear THINX, a pad and a diva cup and run to the bathroom at work every 90 minutes. Please, please don't discontinue this product. Many women rely on it to live their lives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not again!!! Allow me to add my voice to those saying, NOT AGAIN!! It's nearly impossible to find the Ultras in stores again (Canada) and I literally cannot function without them. Every other brand is inferior in the protection they provide.

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.
