In brief: Growth ctrs close

The average female slows after menses as a final 2.
5 inches of linear growth is acquired.Growth centers in the long bones determine the final potential for growth.When these close, they are done.

In brief: 2-3 years after...

Most girls stop growing 2-3 years after they start menstruating and, as Dr. Ferguson mentioned, generally grow an average of 2 inches after their periods start.
But in reading some online discussions on this there are rare cases when girls grow 6 inches or more after starting menses and some women say they even grew taller in college!
