I've experienced both. My 1st one was epi. Took me 2 weeks for the stitches to come out on it's own. It wasn't a comfortable feeling cos you can't sit properly & it's quite painful when the numbness wears off. And intimate moments (3 mths after birth) is quite painful too. While I had a natural for the rest of my 3 pregnancies. Better. I can walk, I can sit & I can poop w/o pain unlike with epi. I cleaned with Dettol 😅 and it took a week or less if I can remember it right.
