Beccah Posted October 14, 2012 Share Posted October 14, 2012 Okay, so I'm an idiot! I probably used like 7-8 sprays! But actually I felt great. I was singing and dancing while driving, definitely not the norm for me. Just felt high on life! Went to a party (just one of those home selling ones) and noticed after I walked in, everyone got really chatty. Everyone was looking at catalogs when I walked in, no one was talking. Within 5 mins of my arrival, the girls were talking, laughing and telling funny stories. Not sure if it was the DHEAS, but it seemed like it was! On my drive home, I noticed my high was gone, and I was just tired. I only felt that way for about 30 mins, so not to bad of a crash, if that's what that was. Felt fine after that. Beccah, what is Oxytocin let down? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxytocin Letdown reflex: In lactating (breastfeeding) mothers, oxytocin acts at the mammary glands, causing milk to be 'let down' into subareolar sinuses, from where it can be excreted via thenipple. Suckling by the infant at the nipple is relayed by spinal nerves to the hypothalamus. The stimulation causes neurons that make oxytocin to fire action potentials in intermittent bursts; these bursts result in the secretion of pulses of oxytocin from the neurosecretory nerve terminals of the pituitary gland. Uterine contraction: Important for cervical dilation before birth, oxytocin causes contractions during the second and third stages of labor. Oxytocin release during breastfeeding causes mild but often painful contractions during the first few weeks of lactation. This also serves to assist the uterus in clotting the placental attachment point postpartum. However, in knockout mice lacking the oxytocin receptor, reproductive behavior and parturition are normal.
