What does it mean to have a balloon mortgage fixed for 5 years?

I had a hard time getting a mortgage because my better half’s credit was not so good so they had to base everything on me. The only type of loan we good get was a loan they called a balloon mortgage. It is fixed for 5 years at 7.25 and we were told we would be able to refinance after a couple of years. What happens if we don’t refinance. Will my monthly payment go alot higher.
