I've read some of the horror stories about epi's that never heal back correctly. My homebirth ended up with me being transferred to the hospital after 15 hours. I ended up having 3 tears, one cervical, one vaginal and one peri. I think the peri was around a 2-3 degree. But I wasn't cut, and the doctor sewed me up afterwards. I've had no issues from them and I am grateful for it. I am guessing the DR was afraid to ask if he could cut me cuz I kept saying "No" to all his other interventions. He must have figured out by then that I'd just say no to an epi as well.
