Diagnosed with minor orchitis. Will masturbating cause infertility?

My doctor said I had minor orchitis and I was wondering if masturbating while having this could cause infertility or anything bad similar to that. I don t have any pain there anymore, just very mild pinches maybe twice a day. I was diagnosed 5 days ago and he said in 10 days I ll be fine, but I was curious if I could do anything earlier now that I m not hurting.
