What age will I start growing after puberty ?

Hey, I am 15 years of age, and positive I am in puberty. I have hairs under my arms, pubic hair about 1 1/2 inches above my penis and some on my penis, and I also have pretty hairy legs. I am wondering when I will start to grow? I would really like to get taller sharpish, because all of my friends are leaving me now, as in, they are getting much taller and gaining more muscle. One of my friends is even 6 2 already and he s the same age as me! So please some one answer this, when will i start to grow? I am currently around 5 4 - 5 5 My mum is 5 6 or so and my dad is around 5 9 - 5 10 So ye, please some one answer this question!! :)

you should realise the fact that everyone is diffferent from others. we cant be different from what God decides. you can only grow taller as much as you can. you cant grow more than what you are genetically capable of. your parents are not very tall, so you cant be taller than them. from what you mentioned, you seemed to have grown adequately for your age. your sexual maturity is adequate & thats what is more important than your height. what special features you have, your friends cant even dream to have. so accept this fact & try to be content with what you have.
