It depends - that's usually when people are finished growing. But heck, I'm 19 and I haven't grown height wise since I was 14-years-old. So there is definitely a chance that you're done growing that way.

you sound real stupid trying to stunt your growth... be happy with what got gave you... I'm pretty sure LITTLE people would love to be in your shoes...


ANSWER #12 of 12

Omg do not listen to idiots who are saying 'start smoking and drink caffeine' it may stunt your growth slightly but it could also give you cancer.

I'm so sorry to say chick but there's nothing you can do. You're going to grow as long as your body grows for. I'm 5'10" now at 23 and I stopped growing at about 18/19. Chances are you might just be further along and stop growing a little sooner but it not then just mentally prepare yourself. Being a tall girl is hard because other girls will tell you 'I wish I was tall' but they don't know what it means and I they will never get it. Shoe shopping will be your least favourite thing trust me. Just try to embrace it and remember - you'll always be able to go on roller coasters and rides. You have a better chance at being a model and you won't ever have to ask a man to pick something up for you. You can just do it yourself and that's a very cool thing. It's just something you can't change or help. Don't do anything stupid or that could damage your health for something you simply cannot change.
