Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Yes, legally, the doctor may drug test you prior to prescribing any medication. The reason being is the doctor would want to make sure there are no contraindicated drugs that would conflict with the birth control he is getting ready to prescribe.
That is up to your doctor as to whether or not he orders the drug test, it is not illegal or unethical for him to do so.
