Hello Miss.Khushi,

The average height of an indian women is 5 feet 3 inch to 5 feet 5 inch. So you are in the average height range. You have mentioned that your age is 19 years. Usually the height of a person depends on the bony growth. Usually maximum growth occurs during 13 to 16 years. Above 16 (up to 21 years of age) even if growth occurs its usually less. Don't try for any medicine to increase your height. As such nothing is proven till now.

My advice is to stop thinking about your height and be happy.

Good luck
