Listen to your body: If you have been menstruating to at least 2 years it is not likely that you will grow physically taller. You are from a small family so enjoy being petite. The heights of your character, goodness, and contribution to the world have no limits. ...Read more
I'm 16 and I'm 5'10" .at 12 I was 5'4".......will I grow taller.... I want to be at least 6'0-6'1"?
I've asked multiple question and recived different answers, in General for a male 16 Yr will I grow taller, I'm 5.10 only looking for 1 inch gain?
You could check: Any further height would depend on having open growth centers in your long bones. A single x-ray of your wrist/hand can be examined for open growth centers. If they have closed, like they do for most males by 18, you are done. If open, you might grow more. If you have grown lees than an inch in the past yr you are likely near the end of your growth. ...Read more
For males, puberty starts at around age 11 – 12 and is complete at around age 16 – 17. After puberty, adolescents experience a growth spurt, which lasts up to two years. During this period of growth, male adolescents can expect to grow up to 4 inches a year reaching their final height by age 20.
As a rule of thumb, a child will be the size of the average of the parents, or slightly taller. ...Read more
Maybe: Growth patterns are related with hormonal changes and with the genetics of your family. There are individuals that achieve their peak growth earlier than 16 and others that still continue to grow after. Your doctor is the best source to tell you that, since he has records of your growth pattern over the years. Also, ask your parents and see when they achieved their permanent hight. ...Read more
Varies: Some kids continue to grow taller into their late teens or rarely early twenties but only when their bone maturity lags behind their age. If the growth centers of the long bones have fused, you cannot grow taller. A single x-ray of the wrist & hand can yield a bone maturity. Most boys stop at 18. If you enter puberty late, you may have potential to grow later. ...Read more
I am 18 years old and I am having only 136.5cms hieght. I am short compared to my friends of same age. Will I grow taller more? How can I grow tall?
A doctor can check: A doctor can check, because 54" is short. There is little or no growth in boys at age 18 years. Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is largely based on genetics and parental heights. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well, and being happy, there's not much a person nor his doctor can do. ...Read more
I'm 19, 5'9, and 175 pounds. If I take pituitrophin pmg 6850, for my pituitary glands, will I grow taller since it helps the growth hormones?
No: As a 19-year-old male, your growth is likely done and your bones growth plates closed. At this age taking growth hormone will bulk muscle and could make bones thicker, but are not going to make them longer, and thus, no increase in height. I urge you to think twice about putting pituitary supplements you describe into your body without someone who knows all their affects guiding you- can be danger. ...Read more
I am 17 and only 5ft3. I have only grown 3 inches since I was 13. My mother is 5ft4 and my farther 5ft8. Could there be a reason, will I grow taller?
Genetics: Family traits such as height are certainly passed down. We all grow are different rates and times. However, it is likely that you will be similar in height to your parents plus or minus a few inches. Growth hormone and other hormones also play a roll seeing your doctor certainly would help shed light on whether it is hormone deficiency or genetics. Good luck! ...Read more

You R likely done: Most males stop growing taller at 17 & expected height is their parental average plus 2.5 inches. The best aid for growth is an active lifestyle, proper rest & a healthy diet. Don't expect anyone to grow taller than their genetic potential. If you want to know if you can grow more, an x-ray of the wrist/ hand can be analysed for bone maturity. If the growth centers are closed you are done ...Read more
If I stretch every day, do the cobra stretch other back stretches neck stretch and leg stretches will I grow taller? Also, taking multivitamins
No: You can find out if you can grow taller by having a bone age study done. This takes an x-ray of your wrist/hand and evaluates the growth centers seen in the bones to come up with a Bone Age, or standardized reading of your bone maturity. If your bone age is adult & the growth centers have closed, nothing will help you grow taller. No diet, no hormones, no stretches. They are good for health. ...Read more

If my 13 height is 4'9 and now I'm 5'6 16.3 years old, can I grow taller or not and it is possible and it normal?
Hard to say: If you are male, the typical growth spurt is between 13-16. If there are other males in the family that continue their height growth after 18, you may as well. There is nothing you can do to make yourself grow taller. It's mainly genetics. Just work on being healthy- good nutrition, good exercise, and healthy habits. ...Read more
