Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Usually in case of regular 28 to 30 days menstrual cycles ovulation will not occur at around 5th or 6th day of the cycle. So, the possibility of pregnancy is less. If your wife is having irregular periods, especially with short length like around 20 days, we can not completely exclude the possibility of pregnancy. Emergency contraceptive pill should be taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse for better protection.
The spotting she had could be withdrawal bleeding due to emergency contraceptive pill and may get converted into regular blood flow but better to undergo urine pregnancy test once to rule out the possibility of implantation bleeding due to pregnancy.

Hope I have answered your query and I will be happy to answer any further follow-up queries.
