Unhappy Shorter periods??!!!

Hi all,

I came off the pill after 10 years in early May. It took my body a little while to adjust to this, I noticed vaginal dryness at first but my periods were still roughly 26-27 cycles and usually lasted 4-5 days. Recently over the last 2 months I have noticed that I get brown spotting about 5 days before my period, and then my period which used to last 4-5 days has dwindled down to 2-3 days. I no longer have vaginal dryness and my cycles are still regularly 26-27 days but the periods seem to be getting less heavy and shorter.
Is this normal??? I am a healthy 26 year old and me and my husband are not trying to conceive however we are not preventing either.
My doctor just sent me for a hormonal blookwork up (FSH,LH,PROGESTERONE).
I'm terrified I am going through early menopause however I have no other symtoms besides shorter periods? I didn't know if it's still my body adjusting to coming off the pill or something worst.
Advice??
