Hi, I've lost my period for two years and now I'm recovery, I'm 18 years old and my height is 1,64m I want to know...if I get my period back can I keep growing?

Hi, it's great to hear that

Hi, it's great to hear that you're in recovery! I personally don't have experience with this but I do know someone that did grow a little bit after she had recovered in her early 20's, though I'm not sure what/if her period played a role in that. But I would recommend talking to a doctor about this as they might have some more specific info on this or you personally. Best of luck!
