Maybe not yeast: Did you self diagnose your yeast infection? Yeast doesn't normally cause colored (yellow) discharge. Colored discharge usually is due to other infections, including STDs if at risk. However, if you also have itching and irritation, yeast is still a good bet. If in doubt, see doctor, and for sure if symptoms don't clear up entirely after a few days of Monistat.
