This paper presents a mathematical model describing the dynamics of Chlamydia Trachomatis infection in a human carrier. The model incorporated relevant feature such as recovery through drug administration. The existence and uniqueness of solutions of the model were examined by actual solution. The stability analysis of the critical points was conducted. The results show that it is globally asymptotically stable under certain conditions. The system of equations were solved analytically using parameter-expanding method and direct integration. The results are presented graphically and discussed. Our results showed that the concentration of free extracellular Chlamydia particles, number of infected, uninfected and recovered epithelial cells are significantly influenced by the parameters involved.
