You stopped growing: Sorry, HadeelA, but at 21 years old, you have surely stopped growing any taller. Usually, girls stop getting taller when their periods start, some time in their teens. For your height, "normal weight" starts at around 45 kilos, so you are a bit underweight.

Height: Unfortunately, after puberty the bone growth plates close, and there is very limited potential for future height growth.

See below: If you have had your period for about three years, there is little possibility you will continue to grow because menses occurs at the end of the adolescent growth spurt.
