How tall will a female grow to be if she is 165 m tall at 17 years of age?
It all depends on the onset of puberty. A female will typically continue to grow 2-3 years after he first period. The hormone estrogen which is secreted in higher amounts once the first period starts, begins the closure of growth plates located in our bones. Once the growth plates close completely, growth in height ceases.
