    Once every year

    "This procedure(in medical term) can only be done once every one year or six months".

    Would it be correct to say every "Procedure can be done once 300 days or one year"?

    Re: Once every year

    Using 'only' means you have to choose one time period or the other. 300 days is neither six months nor a year.

    Re: Once every year

    Which of course averages out to approximately only once every ten months.
