Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Chlamydia treatment consists in the use of antibiotics.

In the daily practice, we often prescribe Doxycycline twice daily for 7 days.

It is a prescription medication, so you should consult your doctor before the treatment.

We do not recommend sexual intercourse during the period of treatment.

Often is needed the treatment for both partners to prevent reinfection.

I suggest you to complete the cycle of antibiotics even if you feel better.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
