RELATED FAQ

Q: How long can I wear a tampon?

A: When using tampons, it's important to choose the lowest absorbency necessary for your menstrual flow. And because the amount of flow varies from day to day, it's likely that you will need to use different absorbencies on different days of your period. Selecting the right absorbency comes with experience, but as a guide, if a tampon absorbs as much as it can and has to be changed before 4 hours, then you may want to try a higher absorbency. On the other hand, if you remove a tampon and after 4-8 hours white fiber is still showing, you should choose a lower absorbency.

Well Engineered

I just bought these for the first time and am highly impressed by the thought process that has gone into them. There are some awesome product engineers behind these things. First, the wrappers. They hold up well in pockets, backpacks, etc.. But with the little flaps on them I can open it, pull out the tampon and then slide the applicator back in before throwing it away. The old wrappers were just trash, then I would wrap the applicator in some toilet paper before throwing away. I love how I don't have to waste more. I'm also impressed with the grip. The previous ones I had were good, but these eye shaped grips, not only grip well but don't roll do to their shape. No more struggles. I didn't know the purpose of the string but I find that when it's time for removal, this string is easier to grab over the previous cords. I shouldn't be this excited about a tampon but I am.

Great!

So, today I had the oh so lovely task of buying the goods. I got a 40 pack of tampons that came with a 5 pack bonus of the pearls. I never even noticed the bonus until I got home, so when I did, I decided to try a pearl out. Very comfortable, easy to use and so far very good at protection. I'll probably get another box with a bonus before making a final decision, but so far I am liking these! I have used Tampax for most of my years (any time I didn't was when things were really rough and had to go for something that was given to me), so these pearls are a nice little thing to try. Applicator is a little short probably for most, but it wasn't a problem with me, as I don't have... err... well... the same depth as most women. As it is right now, I would definitely recommend this!

Ultra rocks~

The Ultra Tampax Pearl are a MUST HAVE for those of us with super heavy flow. This is the highest absorbing tampon I have found so far-and it's comfortable. Thank you for such a wonderful product. I don't go through a month without a box or 2!
