I used monistat 1 (tioconazole) last Friday and it helped almost immidiately but it's 9 days later and I'm having thick white discharge, is that notmal?

May not be enough. A single dose is unlikely to be sufficient to eradicate the infection. Thus your problem may simply be a case of persistent infection temporarily slowed down by the single dose of Monistat or the problem may be from something else altogether. At the least, use Monistat for a least 3 days if not longer . If problem persists or worsens see GYN.
