Growth Plates

SHARE

Hi.I am 16 and I still need to grow taller. HOwever, i have read that your growth plates ossify as a result to high concentrations of estrogen, which occurs at the end of puberty. I almost have a hair on the entire side of my cheek, but nothing under throat. I just wanted to know what can be taken to inhibit this release of estrogen so that i can keep my growth plates open longer.
