Question what is the age to discontinue PAP smear

Hi all:

As titled, what is the age to discontinue PAP smear? at 65 yo or 70 yo.

There is one Q from UW saying 65, but there is another one saying 70.

Probable a typo, the USPTF and MTB and emedicine suggests that if everything was fine and there were 3 consecutive negative PAP smears up to the age to the age of 65 PAP smear is discontinued.
