I got my period when I was 10 and I stopped growing by 13. I'm only 5 feet tall and won't grow anymore. Chances are, you probably will stop growing after 3 years.

Height is determined by your genes, not when you start your period or vitamins.

I got my period late, at 14, and I stopped growing at 15. But some people get a spurt of growth early or late. You might grow a lot suddenly, but most girls I know who grew tall did so before they turned 14. But I'm fine with being only 5'3".

you grow 1-2 inches more after your first period. You probably are your final height, 3 years is quite a while. The normal median for periods is 12, but 9-16 are the extremes, there's nothing wrong with getting your period at 9. Yes, that means you had less time to grow, but you DID have your growth spurt. So technically, you're about as tall as you will be (maybe some more though!) Nothings wrong with being short, I'm like 5'

Puberty doesnt end until adulthood, your puberty will just be slower and spread out over that time rather than at the more immediate rate of people who start at the regular time

You are an American you don need vitamins. How ever tall or long you were at a year old x's that by three. How tall is your mothers mother. A very good indicator.
