What is the heaviest flow tampon available?
The heaviest flow tampon available is an ultra tampon. They can hold 15-18 grams of menstrual fluid, which is twice the amount of a regular tampon. Ultra tampons are the biggest in size.
Can your flow be too heavy for tampons?
Yes, your flow can be too heavy for tampons. If you need to change your tampon or pad after less than 2 hours or you pass clots the size of a quarter or larger, that is heavy bleeding. If you have this type of bleeding, you should see a doctor.
Is Super Plus or Ultra tampons bigger?
The tampon size that is right for you depends on a few factors, including your flow and the size of your vaginal opening. That being said, generally speaking, Super Plus tampons are the largest size available, followed by Ultra tampons. Some brands may also offer Junior/Slim tampons, which are smaller than Regular tampons, and/or Ultra tampons, which are larger than Super Plus tampons. Ultimately, it's up to you to decide which size is right for you.
