Hi,thanks for query.Sorry dear after onset of menstrual cycle in females you can increase your height.After this age the end of long bones do not grow ,so that you can not increase your height.Your height depends upon your genetic coding,your parents must also of short height,do not feel embarrassed it is your personality that matters not your height.bye.
