I'm 17 (turning 18 in October), 5'1 and I have been this height since I was about 14. The thing is, I don't want to grow taller at all, infact I'd actually want to shrink a couple of inches, but since I can't really do that I just want to stay my height. But my family and friends keep saying that I'll grow taller, and they say I have grown recently (even though I haven't). My mum and sister who are both about 5'4 and a half think I'm too short and pray that I will grow which upsets me so I pray that I won't grow anymore. I think they do this partly because they know I don't like it. I'm a little scared of growing above 5'2/5'3 and I feel like anything above that would be tall for me. Being tall suits other people but I just don't think it would suit me. Can I still grow taller even though I've been the same height since I was 14 and I'm nearly 18?
Can I still grow taller?

You can grow taller with
if you sleep standing up you won't grow any taller, at night is when your grow because your body is relaxed.1
Most girls stop growing at around 14. You haven't grown since then. So I think it's almost totally certain that you won't grow anymore.1

Nope, doesn't sound like it. I was in the same exact situation, I was told I was done growing by my doctor when I was 15. My brother and parents are all taller, but I'm only 5'1". The good news is it'll be easy to find a guy taller than you and a lot of them will think you're cuter for being small.1
I don't think so, I reached 5´7´´ when I was like 17 -18 and I haven't gotten taller since then1
not really no, maybe an inch more but not something radical1
You're the first short person I've ever come across that wants to be shorter. I find it fascinating -- in a good way. :) My best friend is 5'1" as well and she taunts me about the possibility of growing taller. But neither of us has grown since we were about 14/15 so I think you probably won't grow taller.1
i'm 5'2 and I think I stopped growing at 16 and I want to shrink too. short is cute.1
