Medical certificate expiration

I know there’s a separate aero medical section but I thought I would post here. I got a first class medical back in November. At the time I was 39. I turned 40 this past February. Do I need to get another medical in May or am I good till November? I only ask because the FAA website states a first class is good for 12 calendar months if at the time of examination you were under 40. Thanks!

It’s good for 12 months. When you go in for your next one you’ll have to start getting them every 6 months. I’m in the same exact boat as you. But you’re good til November.
