A 24-year-old female asked:
Is a small amount of light yellow discharge from a yeast infection normal despite having been using monistat 7 for five days?

Probably not yeast: Vaginal yeast infections usually don't cause colored discharge. And if it were yeast, Monistat would have cured it within 7 days. Colored vaginal discharge (yellow, green, tan, etc) usually means other infections, including STDs. See a doctor soon. Good luck.
