    So, I stopped growing for the most part at about fourteen. I started medication that can be known to stunt growth at this age, too, so settled at 5'6 and then, two years or so later, I grew an inch and ended up at 5'7. Being twenty now, I'd expected my growing days to be over and had accepted 5'7 as my height, but my most recent measurement has shown I've recently grown to 5'8 and a half.

    I've been told this is normal-especially given the medication I'm on and when I started it-and you can continue growing until twenty three, but I'm just a little concerned, especially because I don't know what height I could end up at now. Does anyone have experience with this?

    I'm female, by the way.

    If they say it's normal then don't worry about it. Maybe see a doctor to see what's up and disuss any concerns or questions you have.
