If you already have a prescription and you went to them to have it renewed, then it is not necessary for them to give you a pregnancy test. They probably asked you if you were pregnant or not. Of course you did not know and so you probably answered no. You are in your body and should know what is going on. BTW, it costs extra for a pregnancy test at the doctor's office. Usually you pee in a cup or have blood drawn. You'd remember, believe me. What concerns me is that you are looking to get them "in trouble" for not doing a pregnancy test. Your statement is why most doctors have high medical malpractice costs. What I would be asking the doctor is if the medication you were taking might affect the baby.
