Not at all. You need to get checked regularly with Pap smears. I understand they are uncomfortable but regular testing should spot any *potential* trouble soon enough to take action. That ‘action’ may only be “come back in 6 months”. Not all cellular changes in the cervix will result in cancer and you and you Dr have to assess the risk level, keeping in mind any family history.

All women should get checked as frequently as recommended by they Dr. whether they have/know they’ve been exposed or not.
