Diaphragm compared to Cup?

Thanks for hosting this great site!  After bleeding through three supertampons in less than six hours last week, I'm ready for a change!

I've read about inserting and removing menstrual cups, and it seems an awful lot like inserting/removing a contraceptive diaphragm.  Is it?  I know the menstrual cups are longer, but don't they sit in the same spot in your body?  I have no trouble inserting and removing my diaphragm - I can reach the rim to grab it if I bear down.  What does that say about the length/depth of my vagina and thus the type/brand of cup I should get?

Or am I totally off on the similarities between the two?
