Is this normal after the pill?

Stopped taking my pill at the end of a pack. Had my usual withdrawal bleed and then exactly a month after I had what I assume what the first 'normal' period. Throughout that first month off and since my period I have noticed quite regular extra bleeding. Not heavy enough to need a pad but very noticeable when I wipe after the loo. Is this normal after the pill? Although it says periods may be irregular for a while it doesn't say anything about bleeding between periods and to my knowledge that can sometimes be an iffy sign of other health issues.

I'd speak to my GP but I suspect they wouldn't even entertain talking to me until a good few months off the pill to reestablish stuff. So I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

I’d get any irregular bleeding checked out.

Hmm no I never experienced this (been on and off egg pill a few times) . I think it's at least worth ringing your GP.
