Im very short - September 7th 2019, 07:16 PM

Im a 14 year old girl. My breasts began developing when i was 8 and i got my period when i was 10. My problemb is that im very short. I never really had a growth spurt except when i was like 9 but im not sure if that is just really early puberty or if everyone has a growth spurt at that age. Im shorter than my mum and have grown very little betwen the ages of 11 until now. Is there a chance i will still grow?

There is still a chance you may grow, however, judging by the fact you feel you've grown very little from the ages of 11 until now then you may only continue to grow a little bit (rather than having a huge growth spurt).

When it comes to height, it is largely influenced by your genetics. Chances are you will be around a similar height to your parents. For more information on height, you can check out this article.

Puberty and becoming a teenager can be a difficult time especially when if you are self-conscious and worry about how you look. You might not be entirely happy with your height but I'm sure there are plenty of things about yourself that you do like. Try to focus on the positives and accept yourself for who you are
