I took azithromycin for chlamydia and had unprotected sex 5 days later! Did I infect my partner after a one time exposure?

chlamydia. Perhaps, if you were not cured of the chlamydia. You should warn your partner to be checked.
Possibly. The cdc suggests 7 days of sexual abstinence after the therapy you describe. You may have continued to have adequate colonization ( numbers of chlamydia) to permit infecting your partner at 5 days post therapy .
