In brief: Congratulations

You're one of the lucky ones.
Be it from birth control or because of gradually decreasing ovarian hormone production - it's not harmful and beats all the other posts for heavy, irregular, and painful cycles. I have patients who would envy you.

In brief: Probably normal

Most women will have a tendency to have lighter periods over time.
You do not mention your age, but it is not unusual.
