In brief: Normal PAPs?
If your last 3 pap smears have been normal, you don't have a new sexual partner & no history of "female" cancer, then you don't need to get pap smears after age 65-70 (depends which guideline you pick).
You should still see your doc for your annual physical though.

pelvic might still be needed for urinary problems, atrophy, spotting, etc.
