Inheritance that a wife receives is defined, as you note, as nichsei milug. This means that a husband will have benefit from the fruit of the property, but not in a manner that consumes the property itself.

Once a woman has received an inheritance, there is no way of preventing the property from becoming nichsei milug — though the husband can still forego his rights.

However, there are certain forms of fruit that a husband does not receive, such as “fruit of fruit” (under certain circumstances; see Rivah no. 150).

Best wishes.
