Variable symptoms: Cervical ca or precancerous lesions can have a range of symptoms from nothing to bleeding, pain, etc. Therefore it is important to have regular pap smears and/or hpv test. For your age pap smear is more appropriate.

See below: Cervical cancer may not have any symptoms, there may be bleeding, bleeding on sex and in later stages pain. If you had normal pap three years ago, it is highly unlikely that you have cervical cancer. See this site for more info. http://www.webmd.com/cancer/cervical-cancer/cervical-cancer-topic-overview.
