I eventually told my mom, and she was shocked that I did not bring it up when it happened. I had been told that getting your period meant you were a woman, by friends, and I was not ready to be a woman.
ETA: My friend really did do an excellent job explaining it to me. Her mom was an early developer, and worked in a medical facility, and did a brilliant job relating it to her. I understood the why's and what to do. With that said, if you are not having the talks, someone else is. :-/
It was a good thing you received excellent information from your friend. Before the age of Internet, if your friend or acquaintance gave you bad info (happened a lot back then), you couldn't verify what you had been told.
