when do men stop growing in height

Report as

Testosterone is what makes you stop growing as it closes your "growing plates" in your joints. That is the reason men are generally taller than women (as girls go through puberty earlier so the estrogen causes their plates to fuse earlier and hence be shorter. Guys are generally taller because they start puberty later and have more time to grow when they are younger, so when the start puberty they grow from a taller height). Generally men stop growing in height at age of 25.

Generally men will stop growing taller about the age of 20. The average height of a full grown man in the United States is 5 foot 10 inches. For more information on mens height go to, http://www.ask.com/wiki/Human_height#Average_height_around_the_world.

Girls reach their full height when they are about 18 years old and boys keep growing taller for a few more years. For further information, please visit the website http://www.bigsiteofamazingfacts.com/when-will-you-stop-growing.

Generally, men stop growing in height at around 25 years old. Testosterone is what makes a man stop growing as it closes the "growing plates" in the joints. Men make the most testosterone during puberty, so once puberty ends, males tend to stop growing.
