Lighter and shorter period on pill

Hello, I have been on melodene for almost 2 years now and I've noticed over the last couple of months my periods have become incredibly light, as in it doesn't even colour the pad anymore and they have also become shorter (from 4 days to 2), what is the reason for this? I also missed my period a lot more this year, pregnancy tests all came out negative each time but is it normal to miss your period say about 5 times within this year on the pill?

The Pill can make the womb lining thin so that there is very little to bleed, and sometimes nothing. This isn't really a problem and would be the likeliest reason for your light/absent periods.
