This product works well for light to medim flow days. It is ineffective for medium to heavy flow days even though it is "super". On medium to heavy flow days you will have to change it every 2 hours or so and always use some type of backup. Even on light days, I have to use a backup. Once the box is empty, I wll not purchase again. I strongly prefer OB. They are much more effective.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
