Continued...should I wait a couple more days to see a doctor because the Monistat says it could take up to a week for all symptoms to resolve?

In brief: BE PATIENT

Yes, it can take up to a week to get total relief of symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection, but the discharge, burning, irritation should be lessening over the first few days of use of Monistat.
Sometimes being on a birth control pill makes it more difficult to quickly and fully resolve the infection. Continued discharge or burning beyond 5 days warrants examination to ensure no urinary infection.

In brief: Maybe

A lot of women misdiagnose a yeast infection.
Yeast infections tend to cause more external than internal symptoms, are more likely to have a cottage cheese like discharge and aren't usually associated with an foul or fishy odor. At your age too, an STD check even if in a stable relationship is a good idea.
