In brief: Quickly
Not only is ovulation frequently not significantly delayed after discontinuing the pill, occasionally ovulation can occur between ending one pack and starting the next pack if one is several days late starting the new pack and is taking a 21 day pill.
With 7 days between the standard regimen pills and missing let's say 3 additionally pills before starting next pack, the risk is not insignificant.
