current recommendations

Does anyone know of or have a link to the current recommendations for the time between paps/full gyno exams if your exams have been normal? I currently don't have insurance and it's been over a year since my last pap. I do have a family history of endo, cysts, and other fun things (but not cancer if I remember right). However, I've been getting paps since I was 15 because of those problems (so a full decade now) and they've all come back normal. So I'm not sure how long I can push it before I should save up the $200 that I've been told the local PP charges for a full exam around here without insurance. I thought I read somewhere that the recommendation had been extended to three years between paps if you didn't have a history of problems.
