In brief: Depends and no

Prostatitis may be bacterial in which case clinical examination and urine culture may provide the diagnosis.
In most cases the cause is not known and inflammation of the prostate can be established by examining the fluid obtained on prostatic massage. Your wife does not have a prostate and cannot get prostatitis!
