Coco, this does not sound like herpes to me but to be certain, you may wish to pursue the herpes western blot, the gold standard for HSV testing. It picks up about 8% more HSV 2 infections than the IgG. It is very goodnews that 1) the swabs have all been negative and 2) that your partners test negative as well. The western blot may provide you just the additional reassurance that you need. I can help you with that order if you want me to or perhaps your regular provider can work with you on that. You can get more info about the gold standard test on the internet – google herpes western blot.
