Yes, in case of emergency you can use oral contraceptive pills as birth control pills.
Generally in our setup we advice to take four pills within 72 hours of the act, followed by 4 pills after 24 hours.
You once consult your gynecologist and proceed according to her advice.
After taking the tablets you may get withdrawal bleeding after 4 to 5 days.
Then you can go for regular contraceptive method.
Take care.
