#SwitchStories: Charlotte’s experience using organic cotton period care


Our customer Charlotte shares her experience switching to TOTM organic cotton period care. Read her switch story below #SwitchStories


My first period with no pain whatsoever. I can’t believe the difference!


What is your first name?



Why did you choose to switch to TOTM products?

I wanted to try something without harsh chemicals


Had you used organic cotton period care products before using TOTM?



When using conventional period care products (non-organic) did you experience any discomfort or irritation?

Yes. Intense stomach cramps, soreness and uncomfortable. I have to use tampons due to flow but would avoid it as much as possible as I know it would also cause more tummy pains. I would take pain killers every period usually.


What TOTM products did you use/have you trialled?

Applicator tampons

Day pads

Night pads



Have you noticed any improvements since switching to organic cotton?

Yes! My first period with no pain whatsoever. I can’t believe the difference.


Overall, did you find this was a negative or positive experience using the organic products? (Please consider performance, comfort etc)

Definitely positive. Although I had to adjust to using paper applicators; otherwise there is no difference to previous sanitary wear.
I am so amazed and surprised to have a period with no pain as I just presumed that this was down to my body and not the products I was using. I have 3 young girls who I will be making sure use only organic sanitary wear as I think they are a massive game changer to making life during your period much more comfortable..


Any additional feedback?

I support a charity called ‘supporting sisters’ which donates sanitary products and toiletries to women in refuge or homeless women and I will be passing on any spare products each month to try and help others as well as spread the message.


How likely are you to continue using TOTM products?

Extremely likely
