When do we stop growing taller? - October 10th 2010, 02:22 AM

Okay so the doctor told me we keep growing until we are about 21years old, then the dietician comes and says that we stop growing when we hit puberty...so like 13-15 ish for girls and a bit older for guys. I am confused as two medical 'professionals' told me two different things.
So just wondering does anyone know, or has anyone been told anything else? Im just curious thats all!

I think that it really depend on who you are. I know for me, I stopped growing around 15 or 16. I'm a womping 5'2. Ha. I think that girls generally stop growing from the ages of 16-18.

Hey Emma,

It's different for everyone. I know girls who grew into their 20s. I also know girls who stopped growing at age 13.
I am pretty sure that I am fully done growing as well. I have been done growing for a while.

Hey there,

I remember someone telling me it was a specific time after your first period, but I can't remember what. Honestly, I think it's around 21. I know I'm still growing (and shrinking), so honestly it depends on you.

I guess everyone is different really because some people develop and grow quicker than others. Maybe speaking to your parents and asking when they stopped growing would help maybe as it may give you a little indication as to what time you may stop growing too?

I'd recommend this too. It's more likely to be determined by your genes than what the doctor says. I was one of those people who grew quickly in early puberty, then stopped growing and stayed a little bit smaller than average. It happened to my mum and my auntie and it makes more sense than what the doctor ever told me. Ask parents, grandparents etc if you need an idea of when you'll stop growing

I know that it's different for everyone. But at different times during puberty you have growth spirts where you might grow a bit in a certain part of your body, may it be your height or your breasts. I think it's until about 22 though.

My Dr. says for girls you stop about 15 months after your periods become regular.
