I took a pregnancy test today but I didn't wait the full 3 minutes like I was supposed to and stupidly threw out the test. I only waited around 1 and a half minutes and the test said negative. Is this result accurate or could it possibly change in the minute and a half afterwards? Thanks!

Most HPTs will suggest that you accept the result after two or three minutes, (and after ten minutes, completely disregard what it says.) If it gave you a negative anyway, it may be accurate, but you may want to take a second test and follow the directions exactly so that you can be totally sure.
Also, just to put it out there, pregnancy tests are accurate 10-14 days after your risk. (Just in case you were in a hurry in the first place!)
