Taking Fenugreek and no breast milk?

Patient

Q: I have a son who is 6 months old and when he was born my milk never came in and i guess you could say it "dried up" hes been on formula since birth but i want to breastfeed still. I have been taking 5490 mg of Fenugreek a day to start my milk up again but i cant seem to excrete any. can you tell my why I'm not getting milk out, what am i doing wrong, and how do i get my son to latch on to my breast again? any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

Symptoms:  No milk being excreted from breast
