Hi, good day!
I would like to know if I am still growing because my growth seemed to have paused this year. Over the winter, I grew about 3/4 inch to 1 inch, but suddenly it stopped. Since then, I have remained the same height.
According to the Tanner stage calculator, I am at Tanner stage 4.4, as my pubic hair has started forming a triangle and I have a “happy trail” that began growing a few months ago, although it is still peach fuzz and is not very noticeable. The length of my testicles is 4.3 cm.
I used the height predictor on your website, and it indicates that my predicted height will be around 174 cm, whereas I am currently 171 cm at 14 years of age. My dad’s height is 5’9″ and my mom’s height is 5’2″.
I first noticed the growth of my pubic hair when I was around 10 years old, and I had my growth spurt at 12. Around that time, my voice also started to deepen. A few months after my 14th birthday, I began growing underarm hair, which is now growing a lot, although it is not as thick as adult hair.
I’m just curious if I am experiencing a growth pause because I haven’t grown in almost 6 months.
The last year of being in stage 4 doesn’t bring about a great deal of growth in height. You will likely grow a little bit more, but much of the current growth is in broadening your shoulders and other things that don’t lend you extra height.
Would I be able to reach around 5’9 at least? I’m currently 5’7.5 right now.
It is within the realm of possibility, but the odds are that you’ll end up being slightly less than 5’9.
