In brief: Depends

Most women grow 2-3 inches after 1st menses.
The actual end of linear growth occurs when your growth centers in the bones close. An x-ray of the wrist/hand is a standard way of assessing future growth potential. When your x-ray shows your centers have closed you stop. That is usually 15-17 in women.
