    I'm in my early 40's and my period has reverted back to the days when I was a teenager. HEAVY, painful periods! I love Tampax Pearl tampons, but their Super wouldn't be "super" enough for my heaviest of days. Now with Tampax Ultra, I'm not running into the bathroom every hour to two hours to change. These have really helped my life. Even work became difficult with my heavy flow, it really became impossible to live life, without the constant worry during my menstrual time. If you are like me, these are the tampons for you. You'll feel like your able to live life even during your heaviest of days.

    Not as good as OB Ultra

    Does not work as well as OB Ultra. However this is the only Ultra I can find on the market.

    Comments about Tampax Pearl Tampons with Pearl Plastic Applicator, Unscented, Ultra, 36 ea, 1 pack:

    I can't begin to tell you how amazing these tampons are. To give you an idea of how heavy my flow is, I normally go through a super plus tampon in 30 - 45 minutes on the first 2 days of my period. I always have to wear pads because I always have leakage. I stumbled across these online one day & I couldnt believe they actually made an ultra size. I've never seen them in the store. With these, i can easily go 90 minutes before having to change my tampon. I've also tried the Playtex Sport Ultra tampons and I found that while they work, they feel bulky. Also the Playtex brand doesnt give you any warning about when its time to change your tampon. I just start flooding if I dont monitor it. With the Tampax brand, the leak guard gives me a heads up that im about to start flooding and I can change before I get messy. For me, the Tampax brand is also more comfortable. The only thing I would like to see is this made with a flushable cardboard applicator.

      Comments about Tampax Pearl Tampons with Pearl Plastic Applicator, Unscented, Ultra, 36 ea, 1 pack:

      I am a long time fan of tampax pearls and go from regular to superplus absorbency,these past few years though i use superplus absorbencies for my heaviest flow. When shopping at my local stores in town lately i notice that tampax pearls carry ultra tampons so one day, i was shopping at walmart and compare the ultra box to the superplus box tampons and notice that the size are very different,the ultra tampons are much bigger than the superplus tampons and i thought WOW!!! these tampons are very big my menstrual flows are heavy but it is not that heavy then i thought wait! i can wear on of these to bed usually i wear a superlpus tampon during the day and wear a super maxi pad for going to bed at night.When i started menstrating,i picked up a box of the 18ct tampax pearl ultra tampons several weeks ago at walmart and decided to give them a try.I put one of those tampons inside me that night before i went to bed and sure enough the next day it worked like a charm i even wore the tampon for a few more hours after getting out of bed that was a total of 10 hour use is just when i spotted on the pantiliner i wore underneath, it gave me a signal that it was time to change.On the second night wore another ultra tampon took it out the next morning after 10hours,the tampon was not full and it was not uncomfortable or painful when taking it out whatsoever.Tampax pearl ultras will be in my stock for now on these are my overnight tampons,I know that tampax pearl ultras are the greatest BIG tampons there is but they save my clothes,bedsheets,my mattress and sanity.L.Scott Tulsa,OK

      Not very absorbent for an ultra tampon. These leak after a few hours. The leak guard is a joke. Would not buy these again.

        Comments about Tampax Pearl Tampons with Pearl Plastic Applicator, Unscented, Ultra, 36 ea, 1 pack:

        This Ultra absorbency is the only tampon that will make it through a full work shift for me on my heavy days. At my job I can't always stop what I'm doing and run to the bathroom to change my tampon, so this product is an absolute necessity for me on those heavier days. I'm so glad I don't have to worry about leaking! With the absorbent "rope" at the end of the tampon, I can tell when the rope is getting saturated, and it warns me before I'm about to leak, which is great! Although there are only 2 days a month I need to use this absorbency, I'm very glad to have it when I need it. Thanks tampax!

            Now that I'm on the other side of 25, my 'friend' gets heavier and heavier every time. For a while, I was in a pickle b/c I could not find a tampon that would absorb 100%. I happened to stumble upon this at my local grocery store but they only carry the 18 ct. I am so glad this website carries this in the 36 ct. b/c it is cheaper and more convenient for me. These last as long as they should. Great product!!!

              I happened to find this while comparing prices and I'm so glad I did.
              I only have to change these every few hours, and don't really think about it much. Before I had run to the bathroom every 45 minutes to an hour to change my super plus tampon along with a super absorbancy pad; even with all that I had accidents and we won't even mention being pre-occupied with worrying all day.
              I have never seen the ultra in stores, so I'm guessing it's something you can only find online.

                These tampons are as good as OB Ultra, if not better. I would highly recommend them for the heaviest days. I'm glad I found them after OB Ultra was discontinued.

                      My first two cycle days are very heavy. I've tried super of all brands but nothing works like Ultra. With this product I have no leaks at all. Full protection and I don't have to worry about changing every couple hours. If you have heavy periods you'll love this product.

                      It's very hard to find in stores. I live in the UK so it's even harder to find. Thank God for Drugstore.com.
