In this paper, we study a nonlinear Schrödinger equation with quintic nonlinearity, self-steepening and self-frequency shift terms describing the polarization mode in an optical fiber. As results, several new chirped soliton solutions not yet reported in the literature are obtained. These solutions are found without using computer codes. The solutions are bright, dark and cnoidal solitons. The method used here is very effective and simple and can be applied to other types of nonlinear equations.
