Yes: Growth usually continues for 2 years after menarche or onset of menses. Some girls will grow taller till the age. It will be slower than before. Good Luck.

Not significantly...: From what you are describing, it sounds like your daughter has reached her full maturity (tanner stage 5). For females the majority of height is reached before menstruation begins just a small amount of additional height afterwards for a couple of years. She should be seen by her physician who can order a bone age xray to confirm. if she has reached physical maturity then she won't get taller
