"To start taking birth control pills after using EC:
Start a new pack of pills on the first day of your menstrual period or on the Sunday after the first day of your period. Take one pill every day."
So wait until you get your next period after you take EC, which will be in approximately 2-3 weeks. Taking birth control pills sooner would likely make you feel more ill, as well as take longer to become effective.
