When do women stop growing in height?

Answer

WebMD states that women stop growing in height around the end of puberty, which can be any age from 10 to 18 years. At the end of puberty, a girl's bones lose the ability to grow as the growth plates fuse.

During puberty, girls grow taller rapidly, often becoming taller than their male cohorts for a short period of time. According to PBS Kids, a girl's growth spurt generally ends by the age of 13. While girls sometimes continue growing past this age, most of their growing is complete.

A girl's growth pattern is largely set by her genes, but it is also affected by nutrition and exercise, according to WebMD. If a girl's height seems abnormally tall or short compared to her parents, she should see a doctor for an assessment.
