Question :

Will I grow after my period?

PEER ANSWER

It’s hard to say whether or not you’ll grow after your period. It’s likely, but definitely not a sure thing. There are some girls who continue to grow and there are others who don’t. Believe me, it took me a while to accept that when I measured myself and thought, “Really? That’s all I get?” I chugged milk with the hopes that a gallon of it would give me at least an extra centimeter, but instead of getting taller, I just got lighter after throwing it all (and some more) up. I’ll admit, not my proudest moment.

MOM ANSWER

As a mom, I recall exactly what I looked like and yes indeed I continued to grow. I grew taller and the training bra was pretty much no longer necessary by seventh grade. Take a look around at your friends when you show up in the fall for school. Do you notice how much they have changed?  And take a look at the medical take on periods and growing from our health expert, Dr. Molly.

EXPERT ANSWER

I’ve got good news for you: YES! Most girls still grow an inch or two after they get their periods. Some girls will even grow a bit more if they have a first period and then no more for many months. Any way you slice it, you will probably still grow at least a little after your period starts. Woo Hoo!
