Periods with the Paragard IUD

Patient : I recently had the Paragard IUD put in 3 months ago. Everything Is going fine, and it helped My period, because I use To have HORRIBLE cramps But having the IUD has Made me bleed more And cramp less. But now Starting my period for this month I'm hardly bleeding at all And what I am is mostly the dark Discharge from after my period. With little actual blood. Is this normal for bleeding? To just decrease that much? And be hardly anything ? It feels weird not bleeding This much, because I've Never bled this little EVER even Before the IUD.
