The main reasons people spay before the first heat is to prevent the small chance of the occurence of mammary cancer later and to avoid the mess.

As far as those behavior changes in a female, I have not heard that. Oh well, a lot has been blamed on those darn hormones over the years. Women used to be subject to the removal of their reproductive organs in order to make their personalities more laid back. They didin't call it a "hysterical-ectomy" for no reason.
