Thanks for writing to us.

Increasing your height at the age of 21 is quite a challenging task. After you attain puberty, the long bones of the body stop growing further as their growing ends fuse with the bone. These bones then attain a permanent size.

There are many pills, injections etc., available through internet which claim to increase your height. Their effect is doubtful and do not waste your time, energy and money on them.

Regular yoga practice is known to help in improvement of the posture and ease tension in the body which, in turn, can help make a person feel taller. Several yoga positions can help to maximize these effects.

Your height totally depends on your age and in some cases your family average height.
Drinking milk, stretching and proper sleep can increase your height as the secretion of growth hormone is increased during the sleep specially in the early morning hours.

To produce extra Growth Hormone, develop an effective grow taller exercise program. Scientific studies have shown that the brain releases a larger quantity of GH after aerobic exercises.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful. Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.

Wishing you good health.

Thanks for writing again.

As mentioned in my previous reply that there are no pills that can instantly increase your height. They do claim it on internet but their effects are not proven.

If you are so desperate and you need instant results then you can go for bone lengthening procedures surgically or use concealed high heel shoes.

Select long stripes in clothing which will make you look taller.

Hope my answer is helpful.

Wish you a good health.

Good to hear from you again.

I understand your concerns.

Height is important upto some extent but it is not the only deciding factor while looking for a match. A height of 5'9" is not less. It is more than average height for indian males.

Try to know the exact cause of saying "I don't love you, but you will get me". There could be many other reasons for this and not your height.

Just be hopeful.

Your girlfriend cannot reject you based only on the height. You do not need an extra height to impress her.

Happy to help you always.
