gpg asks for passphrase which it didn't do untill recently

Hello! I have an issue were gpg will request the passphrase whenever my private key is used, e.i. gpg -d. It didn't use to be like this, I've been decrypting files with that key for over three years untill about two weeks ago. Any ideas how to revert this behaviour?

There are no settings set in gpg.conf

gpg has always ask for the passphrase for me, when I try to encrypt/decrypt something.

There are 2 situations where it does not ask for passphrase.

  1. if no passphrase is set for the secret key.
  2. If the key has already been used within 10 or so minutes (not clear on the timeframe here).

That brings more confusion to me than it settles, unfortunately.
