I had my tubes tied 11 years ago and the only thing I remember is having a really really heavy period about 2 months later.  I mean soaking a super plus tampon AND an overnight pad in about 30 minutes. No bad cramps or anything.

I had a Tubal. I think that what you are experiencing is pretty normal. Mine was a little different than yours because I had mine done a year after I had DD. Your body is still trying to re-regulate hormonally, so it is pretty normal for your periods to be light, or nonexistent. Mine were pretty spotty for a few months after. Then were normal for almost a year(like before DD, started the same date every month), and now for the last 6 months they are later and later. I am told it is normal. EX. I started the 25th in Feb. March I didn't start till the 31st. They are in general lighter since I had the Tubal. Yes sometimes I do feel cramps but it is not time to start.

I had one last June. The day after my daughter was born. I didnt have regular periods until this January. They were between 32-42 days apart! I was crampy like a week before. And now that I have regular periods...they are like a pool (sorry if TMI) but its ridiculous. I soak through a super tampon in like 2 hours! That last like 2 days with terrible cramps and then its light and lasts another 5 days with no cramps. and they are every 28 days now :) After time they are supposed to get better!

The thing I'm scared about....i'd be the 1 in 200 to get pregnant! Or after 10 years its 1 in 77!!!!

What you are experiencing is normal for having a tubal done.  I hated the painful and heavy periods for the 12 years I had them tied.  NO ONE told me anything about PTLS, I would have never done it if I knew anything about it.  Once I had them untied everything returned to normal.
