In brief: No
Topamax (topiramate) will not decrease your chance of getting pregnant, but recent studies show an increase risk of certain birth defects like cleft lip and cleft palate.
You should talk to your doctor to see if there are other medications with a safer profile during pregnancy for you to take.
