Help me understand postpartum hormones

I understand that women's hormones get wonky after giving birth - some go up, some go down - and the effects are everything from gonzo baby love to night sweats to psychosis. But is there any information on how the hormones specifically change over time, over the day or even how they might vary between women? [more inside]

Brain Changes In New Parents

I recently read about a study that found the brain thinks in more security-oriented ways after the birth of one's first child. I can no longer find it. Folk wisdom seems to say that once you have a child, your values usually change and you are a different person. Is there research for or against chemical and neurological changes in parents?

How do I know whether I'm depressed, or if it's birth control?

I've started hormonal birth control (Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo) for the first time, and am currently on my third day. I've heard/read of the accompanying depression and mood swings. When can I expect side effects, so that I can assess myself and decide whether or not to continue with the pill? What sort of red flags should I look out for, in case I don't realize I'm being depressive, mood-swingy, or sans sex drive? [more inside]

I don't read Chinese, but I do speak Science.

I'm thinking of getting a tattoo of a bunch of organic molecules that represent positive traits, feelings, etc. More along the lines of serotonin representing happiness than ethanol or caffeine representing happiness. What are your ideas for emotions/ traits and their corresponding chemicals?
