If you start taking the birth control pill the day following removal you should be fine to just continue your protection that way. This will continue your hormone levels in your body to prevent pregnancy. While no method except abstinence is 100% effective, your risk is no greater as you switch. If you miss a day or more you should use back up birth control for 7 days at the beginning of the pill use.
