Johnson & Johnson Still Hates Women With Heavier Than Normal PeriodsYesha Callahan8/14/12 2:50pmFiled to: tamponsperiod piecesOB TamponsperiodsmenstruationRepublishedtweetFb496EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkLast year the internet was in an uproar because Johnson & Johnson discontinued OB Ultra Absorbency tampons. By internet, I mean women's sites, of course. Like Dodai Stewart and many other women, I came to rely on OB Ultras because of my heavy period. They were the only tampons that I didn't have to change every hour on the hour. I never had an "oops I sneezed & sprung a leak" moment with OB Ultras, as I'm ALWAYS having with this other brand I've been stuck with since they were discontinued. Seriously, I've been so terrified to travel while I'm on my period that I actually schedule my trips around my period. No one wants to sit on a Virgin American flight and stain a seat because their Tampax fucking Pearl tampon failed them! Yes, that actually has happened.
