Though guidelines suggest screening starts at 50, researcher says it's premature to change them

I recently had my annual and the pap results came back abnormal. I am scheduled for a Colposcopy this week and I am very nervous.
I have been doing some research on HPV and cervial cancer and am horrified what I have found.
Here is why I am so nervous:
I began having sex at the age of 14, I have had numerous partners, I had clamidia as a teenager, I have the herpes virus, I have been having stomach problems for severeal years that no one can seem to diagnose, I have bad back pain,occasional vagina discharge, heavy periods.... I could go on and on..
Can anyone give me advise?
