FLUID-LOCK grooves provide up to eight hours of protection*. View larger.

Designed for More Control, More Comfort

o.b. Ultra Absorbency Tampons feature a smarter tampon design, recognizing that applicators aren't necessary and that a finger can actually provide more control for inserting a tampon. If you're worried about using a tampon with no applicator, don't be, because o.b. tampons are designed to have you (and your finger) covered. A protective pocket surrounds your finger with soft fibers to help you stay clean and protected.

Expands to Custom-Fit Your Unique Body

Every woman's body is different. That's why o.b. tampons are designed to help stop leaks by expanding all around to custom-fit your unique shape.

It's All in the Grooves

Each o.b. Ultra Absorbency Tampon has FLUID-LOCK grooves that pull fluid into the tampon's core for locked-in leak protection you can wear for up to 8 hours*.

Protection for You and the Environment

Each time you use an o.b. tampon, you're adding one less applicator to a landfill or the ocean. In 2009 the Ocean Conservancy collected over 13,000 tampon applicators** along the US coastline. Since plastic applicators have a lifespan of anywhere between 500 and 1,000 years***, that trash won't be going away anytime soon.

o.b. tampons are free of elemental chlorine and use minimal packaging with 90 percent of the raw materials from renewable resources.

A Tampon Ahead of Its Time

o.b. tampons were designed in 1950 by Dr. Judith Esser, an avid swimmer who refused to be slowed down by her period. She was dissatisfied with the options of her day and wanted more protection and less of everything else. So Dr. Esser designed something innovative that became timeless: the o.b. tampon.

What's in the Box

o.b. Ultra Absorbency Tampons, 40-Count Boxes (Pack of 3).

* Use for eight hours maximum.

This absorbency level used to be super plus before OB marketing people up graded every level by 1 (regular became super, super became super plus, etc). This is THE only tampon that can stand up to the one or two heavy flow days a month. Without them I would have to choose between taking a sick day every month and camping out in the ladies room during the heaviest part of the day. Neither option is career enhancing. The only caveat is to use them appropriately only on heavy days and not as a substitute for an all day pad. The last thing we need is someone developing Toxic Shock Syndrome from not practicing intelligent hygiene and then blaming the product. They are very hard to find in drug stores. I haven't been able to find them in any of the local drug store chains in a long time. Thank you Amazon!

I have suddenly stopped being able to find this in the stores. I actually called OB to find out if they stopped making it, and they claim they haven't. And yet, it's been on backorder for Amazon too. So I made an order and I'm waiting, waiting, waiting....

Please hurry and get it back in stock! There are three women in this household who are getting desperate!

Packaged for sanitary use, and very absorbent. Would use no other brand or style. Never have any leaks or problems. Very good price when purchased here online through amazon with the free shipping.

OB ultra is, in my opinion, the best I have found on the market. I find it very frustrating that in a city as big as Chicago I have to go online to order these because they are either sold out or not carried by many stores. If women who have heavy cycles would try these, I believe they would choose them over the super plus. OB is easy to carry in your purse and although I prefer the ultra, in any size the quality is better than all the others I have tried...and I have tried everything I can find that comes in super and above.

I haven't found anything that can hold a candle to o.b. Ultra. These are a miracle product for those of us who really, really need the extra absorbancy. Hey o.b., I can't put my period on hold until May 2011!!

No leaks, period. What more can I say? Discrete to carry, another plus. The Ultra is hard to find in the stores. Order them from Amazon at a great price, and never run out.
