I've never heard of yearly.  I get the depo shot, but that's once every 3 months.

Ok, just found this SNL skit for a "bleed once a year" birth control.

There are only 2 birth control shots that have ever been approved in the US. One is Depo, which is done every three months. The other is Lunelle, which was done monthly, but that was recalled back in 2002 because of it's ineffectiveness.

Sorry but is sound like BS to me... Or a miscommunication?
