Doing Chafifa before day of Tevila

In a time of necessity, may one perform a Chafifa a day or two prior to the Tevila?

Some Poskim[1] rule that in a case of lack of choice it is permitted to perform the Chafifa a day or two prior to the Tevila. Other Poskim[2] however rule it is forbidden to do so. Practically, one may be lenient.[3]
