Brief Answer: There is scope for some more growth Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. Soon after Menarche (attaining menstruation ) there will a growth spurt. Girls do grow fast and well for some period of time and later that there will be no growth spurt again. This means she will gain some more height. Regards,
