Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am facing a problem with my testicles they are hurting due to not having a sexual intercourse. What would be a solution to that since the optimal solution would be to mastrubate (and it’s haraam). I am not married because I have not enough resources for that.


A: The solution will be fasting. You may fast every alternate day.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
