Starting HBC within 1 week of taking EC

Hello superstars, you are the most awesome people on the planet.

I looked through the tags and read the Vulvapedia entry on EC, but I don't think I saw an answer to my question. I took the one dose pill on Monday, within 3 hours of the unprotected sex. (This was the first time I've ever taken EC, and just as a side note, I have experienced no side effects whatsoever as of yet. I have no bleeding, nausea, nothing.) I plan on continuing to be sexually active for the foreseeable future, and I'm curious about starting HBC. I don't know if I should wait until I experience some bleeding, or if I even will. I'd like to start the pill sooner rather than later, just for my own peace of mind.

I have used HBC on and off for the last 5 years. Recently, I haven't been taking it regularly, obviously, with a month here or a month there. My cycles are a little long/unpredictable so I don't usually do a Sunday start. Do any of you know if I should just start the pill today, or if I should wait till I get a period? Does it even matter? I can't imagine that it would, but I'm not sure.

Also, I just had my annual today so I have been screened for STIs and pregnancy, though I don't think the pregnancy test would come back positive yet? I'm aware that when not doing a Sunday start, it will take a full 7 days for me to become protected against pregnancy.
