Actually, I do believe here in the US there are medications in which you can take. I was asking my AP Biology tacher about that Let me check into in for you.

I suggest you look through the pages toward the back of various magazines and tabloids for small print-ads promising that YOU CAN BECOME TALLER! Regardless of how outlandish their claims seem, have faith! Send whatever amount of money they ask for and faithfully take the pills, apply the creams and do the excercises.
Incidently, you don't have to settle for a small penis either.

you can take medication, but don't do it when you don't need it. I'm 5'8 i'm 20 now and stopped growing last year. Once you stopped growing you can't do anything about it, the medication only works when you're still growing.

I was a very small kid and so my parents and I did a check up, because they can make x-ray pictures of your hand, and tell you how many height you will gain. So they said I would be between 5'8 and 5'10 so I decidied not to anything about it.

No, but you can use your height to your advantage by building yourself a house with loads of really low doorways.
