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.

Awesome!

I have extremely heavy periods, and have had problems with leaking for years. I go through an ultra tampon in 1 1/2 hours. I've always had to wear pads as well, because I'd leak all over the place otherwise. I'm so so happy I tried these! I don't leak anymore! They're really great, finally someone designs tampons for a woman's shape!

The Best!

I'd ONLY buy tampax pearl if at times it wasn't pricey! Thankfully, I can usually find a coupon :)

Love, LOve, LOVE

I have always been a tampax user, but never cared much for the cardboard applicators! (OUCH!!) My friend told me about Tampax Pearl, and how much more comfortable the applicator was, so I gave them a try.........The only ones for me!!!!

Awesome for beginners or pros

I have used Tampax Pearl tampons since they first came out and they are amazing. At the time they were coming out, I was in search of a tampon that would work for me and I had tried several of them and nothing worked as well. These are similar to the Tampax Satin they used to have but with much improved protection. I think these are even better at protecting from leaks than the original tampax cardboard. I like that these mold to your shape and hold more than other brands and they are super easy to put in which is great for first timers who are nervous enough without needing to have a manual to use one. Trust me, I have tried them all including big competitors like playtex and kotex and these are the winners. Although its all going to be different for each person since nothing is ever one size or type fits all, at least start here and save the hassle of possibly wasting time and money. Not to mention the frustrations that may come from a failing tampon. Sleep soundly with the protection of tampax pearl and tackle whatever the day brings throws at you because you dont have to worry about a thing when it comes to the maintenance of being a girl.

Best tampon for heavy flow

My favorite tampon is Tampax Pearl Ultra sized. It's a great product. The application is really no different than a super plus sized tampon. I have always had to wear this size because a lot of days I bleed through a super plus within an hour. High school through adult hood, Ultra has been the size I hunt for in the grocery store. The peace of mind is worth it. Tampon braids leak with any tampon brand so that doesn't bother me for the purposes of this review. It does the job it's supposed to, comfortably and true.
