How much growth do I have left?

I’m not sure when I started puberty exactly, but I remember I first ejaculated semen just before I turned 13 years old. At 13, I was 5 ft 3 inches. After a few months, my voice began to break. I carried a lot of body fat during that time. At 14, I was about 5 ft 8 inches. I lost a considerable amount of body fat, going from 25% to around 15% due to exercising and growing. At 14 and a half, I noticed 2 or 3 fine hairs under my arms. By 15 I had reached 6 feet. Now I’m 15 and a half and I am 6 ft 0.5 inches. My underarm hair has become darker, thicker, and is easily noticeable. My underarm hair does not yet cover the entire of my underarm — only about half of it. My pubic hair now covers my whole crotch and I have like 2 or 3 fine hairs on my upper thighs, but none on my inner thighs. I also have a faint, barely noticeable line of hair connecting my pubes to my belly button. The hairs are darker than vellus hairs but nowhere near as distinct as my pubic hair.

My mum is 5 ft 3 inches. My dad is 6 ft 2 inches. I have a shoe size of 11 UK. Based on the information I just gave you, can I grow another 2 inches?


You describe yourself as being in stage 4 of development. Your rapid growth is slowing down. Boys typically add an additional 1 to 3 inches of height during stage 4. So, yes, it is possible that you could grow another 2 inches before you reach stage 5.
