In brief: Menses + 2.5inches

The process is a bit variable but most girls will get about 2.
5 inches (5cm) taller after their first menses. Some get there quicker than others.

In brief: Girls growth&periods

Girls normally stop growing in height about two years after they start their periods.
This is average but there are exceptions.But the growth spurt stops approx 2 years after the first menstrual period.
