All of a sudden, my normal periods of 13 years have changed.

I'm a healthy 26 yo female and my period started 13 years ago. They've always always always been the same - every 30 days, 5-7 days of bleeding. In the past 3 months, my cycle has shorted to every 28 days and exactly 4 days of bleeding. I've never had this before, and it's been consistent for the past 3 months.
I go to the gynecologist regularly, and have always had normal PAPs, nothing ever abnormal. Sexually active, always use a condom. No changes (diet, exercise, environment, stress, etc) that I can think of that would have caused this change. GYN has no answers for me - as long as I continue having regular periods, "no problems."
I'm not looking for medical advice, I just want to know if any other women have experienced a sudden change in periods like this or if anyone has any ideas of what may have caused this.
