I have white specks in the fluid that comes out.(not discharge, just the fluid inside me) I also have pain on the area between the bottom of my vagina and my anus. It mostly hurts when touched. It feels like its ripping even though its not.

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Pain and presence of white specks could be indicative of infection. Do not delay your visit for examination done by your gynecologist. You will need tests to be done on the fluid to see what the specks are and if infection is the cause for them. Avoid sitting on hard surfaces for long time. If the pain is severe, go ahead with getting an x-ray done to rule out issues like coccydynia (inflammation of tail bone with pain in tailbone area or perineum).
Take care.
