Now. I do not know what resources you have available, but I bought the American Girl book called 'The Care and Keeping of You' and read it w/ my daughters when they were 7. It was a good starting point for many conversations... and they didn't even start puberty for almost another 2 years.

It is unusual for a 7 year old to already have pubic and under arm hair... so if you haven't already brought it up to the doctor.. please do so. It could be just a slightly early start to puberty, but perhaps there is a medical issue going on as well.
