Unhappy how to add few inches to current height?

I'm a female of 17 years. Its embarrassing as I find myself to be 5 ft. My father is about 6ft and my mother is about my height. Currently I'm taking Calcium and Vitamin D supplements if it can add few inches to my height. I want to badly grow taller but it seems I'm growing very slowly(as my parents says) though I don't notice much difference in my height when compared to past one year's.
Few people suggested me to do stretching exercises but I read that once we stop exercising we get back to the old height. Is there any way or suggestion that any of u can give? Any diet plan or ant supplement that u know might work or worked for u?
I was previously considering using HELPO GROWTH FORMULA to increase my height but I'm not sure if its fake or legit. Any one having any idea? Please help!

Re: how to add few inches to current height?

hi, my son went thru this at your age and we took him to a specialist (endocrinologist) and he said girls will mostly stop growing once they start
their period. Boys can keep growing until they are in their 20's. I know its harder being on the smaller size but there are girls who want to be shorter
too! I am 5'4" barely and shop in the petite area. Are you the type that can wear heels? (I could not) if so that is great. Also is good for the guys that are on the shorter side if you think about it you have a larger selection that others!

I know this probably isn't much help but try to look at things on the positive side. cj

Hi the endo gave my son 3 shots of human growth hormones one each month so it was a prescription injection. I don't know anything about OTC stuff, sorry. cj

Re: how to add few inches to current height?

At 17, the growth plates in your bones are almost certainly sealed up, which means you can no longer grow.

The online supplements to increase height are fake, a waste of money and unhelpful. At your age, there's really nothing that's going to make you taller, other than a very painful surgery.
