Incompletely treated: In all likelihood, the yeast infection is not entirely cleared. Assuming that the whitish discharge is not the Monistat itself, i would have you consider treating another 3 days. If the discharge is still present, then go in to your doctor for a culture to confirm that something else is not going on!
