Yes, but it would be very - very - VERY rare. Chlamydia does serious damage quick, so having it for "years" without having severe side effects is really not likely.

Describe the path of eggs from ovaries to outside the body?

The egg(s) is released from the ovaries. It then goes to the fallopian tubes. Here, it can be fertilized by a sperm cell or remain unfertilized. Either way, it travels through the fallopina tubes and into the uterus. If it is fertilized, the egg will implant on the lining of the wall of the uterus and begin to grow. If not, the lining will shed. This, along with the egg, will travel out of the body through the cervix and vagina in the period.

Why do you still have chlamydia after treatment?

It's not likely that you still have chlamydia if you took the proper treatment as prescribed. If you're still having symptoms, contact your health care provider. If you were tested immediately after treatment, you've made an error -- the test will remain positive for four to six weeks after treatment.

How long will chlamydia remain in your system after treatment Will the blood screening always read 'positive'?

Blood screening is not a normal way to test for chlamydia. With the normal testing for chlamydia, the tests are accurate again in the future (although possibly not accurate within the first month after treatment, depending on which test is used.) You should consider yourself contagious until seven days after single-dose treatment, or until seven-day treatment is complete.
