Curious as to how many cup users use a diaphragm?

I was just researching birth control methods. I came across the diaphragm/cervical cap (which I had completely forgotten about) and now I want one because it looks kind of like a menstrual cup! (Well really it looks more like an instead, but it's close.) I was just curious if others here used one and wanted to share their experiences. It doesn't seem quite as effective as hormonal methods, but it also doesn't have side effects and is reusable/cheaper just like a cup. I think I would get a silicone diaphragm, since I've heard a lot of stories about developing latex allergies after use of the keeper. I'm already familiar with my vagina and my cervix, so it does not seem too difficult to use. Also, it would double as a cup and my bf and I could have *ahem* have sexy times on my period, cleanly. Other forms of BC like implants, IUDs, HBC, etc. don't seem worth the price since my bf and I are in a long distance relationship and we don't see each other often.

Sooo, if you use one, how long has it lasted? Pros cons experiences? I'm very curious and want to get fitted for one now, lol. Thanks in advance for your replies. :)
