See below: Women who have reached age 70 and who have had at least three normal pap smear results and no abnormal pap smear results for the last ten years may decide to stop cervical cancer screening through pap smear completely. Getting a pap will not do any harm, if you have any doubts about the need for continued screening.

No: No need for pap after the age of 65.
