    Yes, I certainly think it is possible to grow after age 15. Sometimes growth comes in fits and starts. 5'5" is a perfectly fine height and I can't imagine why your doctor says you're supposed to be 5'9" when the average woman is 5'6", I think. Don't worry about it! :flower:

    My doctor said I was supposed to be 5 foot 6 and I turned out to be 5 foot 3. I think he said this because I was an early bloomer and the tallest girl in my class when I was in sixth grade. But since I was early to grow, I was also early to stop. I'm 22 now, so obviously I'm not growing anymore. But, yes, you can definitely still grow, and even if you don't, 5 foot 5 is a fine height to be.

    Depends on your family history too. My mum didn't grow until she was in her last year of highschool. My estimated height (when I was little) was 5'7 and right now i'm 5'2 or 5'3ish.

    My mom didnt really start growing until college she was 5 2 when she got out of high school and then 5 6 when she got out of college then my dad is 6 4 or 5.....plus i am a premature baby so maybe i am a very slow grower like my mom....

    Then my brother who is 18 is 6 4 he was also a slow grower but all the height tests were right with him so maybe.

    Im 16, and I've grown 2 inches this year. Last year, my sophmore year in Highschool, I was 5'7, now im 5'10. Its common for girls to grow (in more way than one ;) ) after 15.
    So much for genetics, my mom is 5'2. :eek:
    Then again, my dads 6'0.

    My mom is about 5'11 and two of her sisters are over 6 feet. Her mother was several inches over 6 feet. But my dads mother is a little over 5 feet. I am luckly almost 5'9 and I am 14. I think you can grow after the age of 15 depending on when you started to grow. My sister is now 16, almost 17, and has been 5'9.5 since she was 13.

    Being short is a blessing sometimes. I had a dumbass guy tell me once in highschool that he wouldn't go to a dance with me becuase I was to tall.

    And yes you can keep growing after 15 at 15 I was 5'9 and now I am 5'11

    I'm only 1,71 m tall, or should I say short... When I still lived in Sweden I was usually the shortest guy wherever I went. At work, I'm the shortest Nordic. I'm shorter than all the guys and girls.

    But since I'm living in Italy now, there are actually plenty of guys shorter than me! It feels strange to not be the shortest anymore...

    Anyway, I'm not complaining in any way about being short. I don't have a problem with it, I don't feel short, sort of. Oh, I reached my final height at 13 I think?

    It entirely depends...you can start growing at seventeen...David Beckham (England football captain) was a titch until about sixteen.

    exercise helps with posture and encourages growth providing you are also well nutritioned.

    so go do some sport peeps ;)
