In brief: Immediately

Not sure i understand what "symptoms" means in relation to birth control.
Do you mean effectiveness? Birth control pills are considered effective after you have taken them for a full month. And assumes that you took them daily as scheduled and aren't taking any medications that can decrease the effectiveness of them.
