Hi, it would be good form to introduce yourself to the forum before you ask for help!
Anyway -it depends on the year of manufacture of your watch, if it's a 7S26A the regulator may have moved - if it's a 7S26B it could be regulator or the hairspring may have jumped out of position.
Some may suggest percussive repair - I'd say take the back off and fix it properly.

This happened to me. Essentially, what you have to do is let the watch unwind itself, then knock the watch on a desk with a little force. You hold the watch so the crown side hits, or the non-crown side, or the 12, or bezel, or stand on your head while pedaling your feet. Something like that :). It just takes a very directed knock to set everything straight. Mine was running a few seconds fast per minute, which seems faster than yours, so maybe its a different issue?

Open the back and fix it properly - just hammering away whilst doing a jjjjig, isn't good practice- or advice.
Even if it does apparently "fix" the problem, if the hairspring has dislodged -then the rotatable stud requires adjustment to stop it happening again.
