    Hello there,

    I'm an 18 year old male and I'm very short for my age, only 5'2". Did anyone out there have a growth spurt after they turned 18? Does anyone have friends or relatives who had growth spurts when they were 18+?

    Also, for those of you who grew post-18 but wouldn't describe it as a 'growth spurt' how much did you increase?

    Thanks in advance for any and all replies.

    I'm 18 and 6'2" and I swear every few weeks when I see my uni friends, I'm a little more taller than them each time. It's not too late...

    I'm not yet 18 but when I thought I stopped growing at 16 I had a growth spurt and am now 6'1". My brother also had a growth spurt whilst at uni and is now 6' after being about 5' 10". Hope it all works out for you

    a couple of my mates had a growth spurt of about 6 inches after they turned 20, they're about 6'1 now. Im approaching 21 and i havent had it i guess to some extent it depends if you have it in the family genes.
