Growing taller?

What's everyone's height and age. and when did you stop growing

i think im very short

5"3 , 15 years, male

5"3 looks ok on girls, but on a guy, i think its ugly.

anyways, im asian, so that probably contributed to my shortness, my mom is about 4"11, my dad is about 5"5, and my grandparents werent much taller. I guess im pretty screwed eh? Also as part of asthma med, im taking steroids which to my knowledge stunts growth.

what do you guys think. any chance for me to be at least 5"7??

I think guys can grown till about 18, is that right? Eat your veggies, that is what my mom always said...don't be hard on yourself, everyone is different and has something they don't like about themselves! I'm sure all your good qualities way supercede your size!

I'm 35 and 5 foot 9. Don't know when I stopped growing for sure...long ago.

I am 39 also and 5' tall, and boy another 3" would sure help me out in terms of functioning in society, lol.

I have run into a few guys I used to know in high school, and if I had not been told their names I would not have recognized them, because they were about a foot and a half taller than they were in high school, so at least for some males they have a growth spurt late. Women stop growing usually around 15-16, though, from what I understand. Genetics is the best indicator, though, so if your relatives are short chances are you will be as well. I can think of worse things.

Stopped growing heightwise at about 20. Started growing lengthwise at about the same time.

Current height - 6'2'

My oldest son (who is currently 22 years old) had chronic asthma until he reached 16 years. He took steriods since he was 2 years. He is currently 6'4"

37 years old & 6' even...My family doc told me & my mom at a check up in 7th grade to quit basketball because "you're not going to grow anymore" !! I was about 5 FT at the time. What a jerk! I was devastated & cried on the drive home. Looking back, it was an odd things for him to say since I hadn't hit puberty yet!

I stopped growing at about 20, but I did not begin my expansion project until I got married at age 27. I am now 32 and am 5'10.5" tall (I need that half inch).

After growing lengthwise, we then start to shrink, right?
