    Question about male growth after 18

    Hello i recently turned 18 years old and I am only 5'5". My dad is 5'9" and my mom is 5'4" I haven't grown significantly in probably 2 or 3 years and im starting to worry that Im done. I was wondering if there was anything I could eat or any suppliments I could take that would stimulate any chances I still may have to grow an inch or two more. Thanks for the help

    Take a look at your grandparents, aunts and uncles and if they are on the tall side you have a good chance of growing taller too.

    My husband grew taller while in college.

    You could still grow a slight bit, but don't expect to be six feet tall or anything. I'm blessed with height, thank goodness.

    Are we talking about how tall you are? I almost thought you meant something else, and when I noticed that you put your mom was 5'4 I was like what the heck dude. Lol. Sorry though. Thats normal btw.

    No food or vitamin will make you taller than you are genetically meant to be. If it helps, I'm a female who doesn't like tall men. Any guy who is 5'10" or taller is too tall for me. Don't worry about your height: you'll find someone who thinks you're perfect!
