Period help

Patient

Q: E had heavy periods since the age of 10 lasting 6 to 7 days. I started having sex in October 2013, he always used spermicide condoms. Since then I've had two periods in one month and they have been lighter lasting only 4 to 5 days. The last time I had sex was January 16 and I had my period that month. February I did not get my period. I got my period in march twice ( the first one 34 days and the second being 28 days) and in April twice. After I got my period in march the first time I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. I was spotting when I took it, but it still came out negative. Then a week and a half later I took two the same day and they both came out negative. I know it's my period because there are blood clots and it's constantly bleeding like a period, but what is causing it to be so light and only for four days. Mind that I spot two to three days before and a day or two after.
