The First Link Is Menstruation And Bone Growth

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically there are indeed several factors that influence a person's height growth. The most important factor is genetic. Someone who has tall parents will have greater growth potential than someone whose parents are short. Other factors that also affect are hormonal and lifestyle factors (including nutrition, sleep, and exercise).
A person's height growth will indeed stop after puberty ends when the growth plate in the bone is closed. In women, height growth usually stops after reaching the age of 14-15 years, around 1-2 years after the first menstruation occurs. After this bone growth plate is closed, nothing more can be done to increase height. Before the bone growth plate is closed, a good lifestyle factor will be able to exert considerable influence on height growth.
It is true that you say that a woman whose periods occur faster (meaning that her puberty occurs faster), her height growth will also stop faster. However, there really isn't much that can be done to manage this. If puberty occurs very early (before age 8 years in women or before age 9 years in men), then the condition is not normal and requires further examination from a pediatrician.
If you have not experienced menstruation at this time, you can try to maintain your diet (make sure you eat enough nutritious food in sufficient quantities, don't be lacking and don't overdo it), get enough sleep (9-11 hours if you are between 6-13 years, or 8-10 hours if you are between 14-17 years old), and do regular exercise for at least 30 minutes a day.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
