In brief: Still grows but...
Menarche, start of menstruation, follows growth spurt.
Girls continue to grow, 3-5 inches more.

In brief: Sort of
Onset of menstration starts the fusion of the growth plates and decreases the rate of linear growth, but does not stop it completely.

In brief: Most girls grow
for about 2 years after they start menstruating, but it is a slower growth than prior. The biggest growth spurt is generally during the year before the first period.
